  1. AC442 — Proposed Acceptance Criteria for Spray-applied Sealants.  A new criteria is proposed to establish requirements for spray-applied sealants that are used in one or more of the following applications: to maintain the integrity of penetrations in combustible fireblocking, as an alternative to foam plastic insulation applied to sill plates and headers in Type V construction, or to limit air infiltration in penetrations and paths of air leakage in the building envelope.

  2. AC180 — Proposed Revisions to the Acceptance Criteria for Clay and Concrete Roof Tiles. Revisions are proposed to update the criteria to include the 2012 codes and delete the UBC, allow permeability testing to be conducted to the 2011 edition of ASTM C 1167 as an alternative to testing in accordance with the 2003 edition, and update the quality control requirements to reflect changes made to AC304.
